The 53-year-old hails from Sydney, Australia, and previously starred in Runaways and Hunters following his breakthrough role in FX's Nip/Tuck.

Julian’s character Jess is the head of the FBI's Most Wanted unit, which handles the bureau's most extreme cases.

According to wiki fan media, he is "agent's agent" who “explicitly trusts his team and looks out for the younger agents.”

The page adds: “LaCroix is often reticent about his private life and even his agents know that it is not a line to cross.

“His brother-in-law Clinton, whom he sees more as a brotherly figure rather than his subordinate, is usually the one to discreetly remind him to take care of himself or check up on him.”

The character has a daughter called Tali with his late wife Angelyne – who is predominantly cared for by his parents in law.
